Watershed Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources

Growing awareness of the complexity of water quantity and quality issues related to human activities leads to dealing with those issues on a watershed scale. This minor is for graduate students wishing to develop expanded skills in watershed science/engineering, planning and design, and culture and policy issues related to water. These skills are especially useful for careers in natural resource policy, water and land management, sustainable development and design for private industry, and storm water management for government agencies. Successful completion of the watershed minor is documented on the transcript.

The minor consists of 9 hours from the lists found on the minor website. The courses taken must include at least one course from the Watershed Core. Note that some classes may have prerequisites.
